Pronounced “Lahm-zin-yah-nyeh-ka,” this tiny, nine-table restaurant offers authentic Slavic comfort food at unbeatable prices. The name, meaning "girl from Lomza," refers to owner-chef Janina Grzelczak, whose savory homemade cooking has attracted a loyal following since 1995. Customers from all cultures come, BYO six-pack ready, often waiting a short while for a table to open up so they can dig into a hearty plate of potato pancakes with beef goulash. Though the dining room décor erroneously skews toward old-lady chic (plastic covers over lace tablecloths, silk flowers pinned to the walls), soft lights make the atmosphere cozy. The menu helpfully lists English translations alongside the Polish descriptions, and nothing is priced over $10, so you can mix and match favorites like borscht and Wiener Schnitzel. For variety, the oversize Polish platter comes with pierogi, stuffed cabbage, stew, and spicy kielbasa sausage. All entrées come with a starter plate of pickled vegetables and sauerkraut, but save room for dessert—an array of blintzes with fruit toppings.

Recommended Dishes

Borsht and vegetable, $3; Polish platter (two pierogies, kielbasa, stuffed cabbage, bigos, and mashed potatoes), $10; Hungarian pie (potato pancakes with beef goulash), $9; chef's blintz, $7
